Yup... you guessed it, Disney are reportedly making a live action version of Mulan. Are they every going to stop?
Live action remakes so far;
- 101 Dalmatians
- Alice In Wonderland
- Beauty And The Beast (Announced)
- Dumbo (Announced)
- The Little Mermaid (Rumored)
Seriously... is this what they are doing now. Is this it? Is this Disney. I can't imagine them making Mulan into a live action musical as they will with Beauty And The Beast but.. you never know! Next up Bugs Life.
Following Alice In Wonderland, Maleficent, the just-released Cinderella and the currently-filming Beauty And The Beast, Disney are heading east for their next live-action fairytale. The Mouse House are now putting together a new re-telling of the Chinese legend Mulan. Newcoming team Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek are at work on the screenplay. Disney, you'll recall, previously tackled Mulan with a classic animation in 1998, hence most of the internet this morning referring to the new iteration as a remake. Since the legend dates back to the 6th century, however, it seems a bit much to be calling the one with the proto-Donkey Eddie Murphy comedy dragon the "original version", as many are. The first film adaptation was a Chinese silent in 1927.
